orange you glad you had some carrots

carrot muffinIt’s getting cold here in Toronto, and when it gets cold, I can’t help but bake. I especially like to bake when I have ingredients to use up in my fridge, like carrots. I tweaked a great carrot cake recipe I got from my sister-in-law to create these muffins, using whole wheat flour, shredded carrots and crushed pineapple. They are perfectly naturally orangey coloured. Muffins like this are a great way to get more fruit and veg into your kids. Great for school snacks! Also great for Mommy’s breakfast with a sneaky swipe of butter…
